sand gets you dirty
In a nutshell
Happy relaxation in paradise
Huacachina lies a few minutes from Ica. The best thing will be to get a bus to Ica and from there take a taxi to Huacachina. The bus ride costs about $1 USD per hour driven. The taxi costs a dollar or so.

I had the privilege to meet the Desert Man of Ica, Roberto Penny Cabrera (from here on known as Desert Man). The Desert Man is a geologist and miner by profession, but an eologist by heart (eology is the branch of geology which deals with erosion). A Dutch gal I had met at the same hostel had taken a desert trip with him and she introduce me to him. Let me tell you, the Desert Man acts, lives, and breathes just like Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter on the Discovery Channel, however, he acts this way explaining and teaching you about his passion in life, the Desert of Ocucaje, which can be accessed 30 kilometers south of Huacachina (50 kilometers inland from the Pacific coast). Most precisely, as I will find out later, his true passion is shark-teeth hunting in this desert. Check out my Ocucaje page in Peru for more info on this adventure!
